How to Change a Brake Light

Car brake lights


Your brake lights turn on every time you slow or stop your car, so it’s probably unsurprising that these light bulbs burn out from time to time. Whether you choose to replace a brake light at home in Pocatello or trust the experts at Ron Sayer Nissan is your decision. However, we would like to state for the record that we can help you out with just about any problem facing your vehicle. Schedule service with us today to get the process started.

Steps to Replace Your Vehicle’s Brake Light

Here’s some tips on how to replace a brake light. There are a few things you’ll want to consider as a Ammon driver:

  • Locate the correct bulbs. The first step you’ll want to take is to figure out the right type of bulbs for your Rexburg vehicle. Your owner’s manual should tell you which ones to use.
  • Remove the tail light housing. After you find the replacement bulb, you’ll want to take off the colored lens that hides the brake light bulbs. You can do this with a Phillips-head screwdriver. After the cover has been taken care of, take the depleted bulb out.
  • Replace the brake-light bulb. Before you put in the new brake-light bulb, apply a bit of dielectric grease to the end, which takes care of corrosion and rust. It also makes it easier to remove the bulb once it’s time for another change. Put the new bulb in place, reattach the tail light housing, and enjoy driving safely around town once again.

Why Check Your Tail Lights?

The reason for your tail lights is to tell other drivers if you’re making a turn, preparing to stop, stopped, or reversing. When your car’s tail lights aren’t functioning properly, drivers don’t know what to do next. This is why having a broken tail light can lead to a ticket. Safety is the premier reason for checking your tail lights and making sure to fix an old bulb.
